I'm jealous LM.... your volunteer squash plants look better than my carefully planted and well pampered squash in my 4 X 10 MM bed. Sad

This is why I now plan on planting my squash in the compost pile.  They like it better there than any place else.

All of the basil in the squash bed are volunteers.  Lemon or Lime basil

 I had to pull a lot of it out so the peppers in the middle could grow but I left a lot hoping the SVB wouldn't be able to find the squash stems.  What a Face

I think it's a bunching onion from somewhere last year. When I stirred up the box with more compost last spring this stray seed must have been moved. Let's celebrate Volunteers with Pics 100_7618

I also noticed today that there are a few tomatoes sprouting in my newest box built earlier this month for my fall crops, so they are from the compost. Kinda late for baby toms in these parts but I'll find a home for them anyway in hopes of seeing what kind they are.

Ain't it the truth! My volunteer ornamental tobacco is about 7' tall -- right next to my carefully tended catnip that's only about 7" tall and struggling. Mad

Here is my volunteer cuke that turned up in a container with a tomato plant.

It already has blossoms -- none of my planted cukes are this far along. Rolling Eyes

We have juniper bushes all around the front yard at the old place (now Katie's "new" place). A few years ago, I noticed a "weed" coming up through the middle of the juniper by the front gate. Should have gotten it out of there, but never got around to it. Noticed last year that the "weed" was taller than the juniper, but still didn't get around to removing it.

Yesterday, I noticed that the "weed" is actually a volunteer cherry tree! happy turtle

It has 2 perfect cherries on it (one barely visible in the lower right corner of the pic).

Bob doesn't garden. He doesn't plan, buy seeds, prepare soil, compost, mulch, weed, or cultivate. BUT, when he's feeding the chickens and the doves and other wild birds, he waters down the old goat area. His volunteer sunflowers are huge, gorgeous, and full of happy birds. (Katie and I grew sunflowers from seed in carefully tended containers -- not half as big and beautiful as Bob's volunteers.)

There's also some corn mixed in with Bob's sunflowers. If that actually produces after my failed attempt in the BTE garden, I may just have a meltdown. Razz

Today I pulled out no less than 30 volunteer tomato plants that came up in the onio bed.  There were Golden Jubilee tomatoes in that bed last year, and apparently a tomato or two got left on the ground...  Very Happy

The volunteer marigold and semi-volunteer NZ Spinach are way ahead of the plants I've actually encouraged:

Let's celebrate Volunteers with Pics JZA7yGI

By semi-volunteer, I had this brilliant idea that I would make a Christmas wreath on the lawn from sprouting NZ spinach. I had a whole container of recovered NZ spinach seeds. I spread them in a carefully designed donut. I went out every day and watered them for nearly a month. But nothing sprouted in time for Christmas, New Years, Or even MLK Jr. day. But NOW  some of it is coming. I guess if I tried it again I would try to pre-sprout in advance, even though that would mean a lot of extra work transplanting.

New Zealand spinach in two over-wintered beds, 2'x3' and 2'x4'. I didn't clean the beds for winter like I usually do.

Why I grow chamomile in a pot!  I will greatly thin the volunteers in the pot, leaving maybe 2 or 3.
